Scientists have known for years that measles alters the immune system, but recent evidence suggests that it does not alter the immune system, but rather restores it completely.

Late on November 15, 2019, on the island of Upolu in Samoa – a small part of the Pacific Ocean, somewhere between Hawaii and New Zealand – and government officials rushed to a meeting in the coastal capital to discuss an urgent public health issue. At the end of the evening they immediately declared a state of emergency.

Three months ago, after arriving on a flight from New Zealand, a person developed a rash and exposed red and brown spots, at which time the measles virus broke out. This was soon identified as a “suspicious case” but no further action was taken.

By October 2, seven more measles cases had been reported. Schools – the best environment for the virus to spread among its favorite victims – opened its doors as usual with the simple privilege of banning award ceremonies!
